Everyone interprets the world in their own way, through a unique lens. Our perception impacts how we color incoming information. Our world view is constructed with satirical, scientific, religious, political, and personal thoughts and experiences. It is only through sharing different perspectives that we learn about our own biases, which color how we see the world.
TEDxNSU––whose theme this year is “Perception”––is looking for speakers with distinct perspectives and ideas that will inspire others to question the lens through which they view their world.
Hosted by the Farquhar College of Arts and Sciences and modeled after the TED Talks, TEDxNSU is an annual, public event featuring engaging lectures, videos, visual art, and interactive experiences.
This is the fourth year TEDxNSU has been hosted by the college under the leadership of Leanne Boucher, Ph.D.; W. Matthew Collins, Ph.D.; and Jason Gershman, Ph.D., associate professors, and James Munoz, Ph.D., assistant professor.
